Don’t feel like lifting bales of hay onto trucks, but want the strength of someone who does? Working out with kettlebells — round, heavy weights with handles, similar to the shape of a large tea kettle — imitates the motions of farmhand work and other heavy-lifting activities that require full body strength. Kettlebell workouts integrate the whole body at once — arms, legs, back, abs — rather than targeting and isolating specific muscle groups. This helps to build endurance, too. Exercises include swinging and lifting or grasping and holding for a length of time, as opposed to the stationary reps one normally does with dumbbells. The trainers at CrossFit Orange, which is affiliated with Bare Fitness health club, can help you learn more about proper technique for a safe, effective workout.
